Q:what panals would run ac
by|Nov 14, 2022
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Hi Randy, Thanks for your question. The answer will depend primarily on the power requirements of your particular A/C unit in watt-hours. For example, a 15,000 BTU A/C unit running at 100% will require up to 1,500 watts per hour, or 1.5 kW. To run this unit with solar would require 1.5 kW of panels, which could be achieved as follows: 30 - 50W panels 15 - 100W panels 8 - 200W panels 4 - 370W panels This calculation assumes full direct sunlight, so if you need to run the A/C during cloudy conditions or at night, a sufficiently-sized battery storage system would also be required. Keeping the batteries charged while using the A/C could possibly create a need for additional panels, depending on the situation. Hope this is helpful. Grape support

      Q:Would I need any extra wires to connect 8 of these?
      by|Nov 1, 2022

      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes, if are going to parallel them for a 12V system.. Since you have 8 panels I assume that you are going to use a charge controller that is able to handle over 40 amps (assuming 12 V at 5+ amp 100 Watt panels in parallel). Also use higher gauge cables since it over 40 amps total.

      by|Nov 5, 2022

        A:  Most likely, yes. The panels come with 47.2” long cables complete with MC-IV connectors. Therefore, it depends on how they will be configured (in series, parallel or combined), as well as the distance for the Charge Controller or Batteries.

        by|Nov 3, 2022

          A:  Yes, in a manner of speaking. "Positive and negative leads equipped with MC4-comparable connectors" Basically it's a quick connect and the other question would be series or parallel. More volts vs more amps. There are also charge controllers that are needed to charge batteries without backflow of current. This is a good way to go for off grid, backup power, or just to keep from running a generator. But do a little reading on it, plenty of websites and social media groups for answers. It'll save a bit of time and frustration.

            A:  Contact Grape Solor directly for the number of panels you can connect together and wiring gage size required. 1-877-264-1014

            by|Nov 7, 2022

              A:  Yes and depends if you hook 2 in series for 24V strings

              by|Dec 31, 2022

              A:  In Series, No. In parallel, yes. Eight panels in parallel will give you some pretty serious current. The panels have a blocking diode so It will be pretty easy to connect them together.

              by|Nov 6, 2022

                A:  Hello, In most cases, the answer is yes. Any solar system will require a charge controller and a storage battery, and many users will also require a D/C to A/C inverter. Additional cables or connectors are required for: Battery connection Parallel panel configurations Extensions for panel arrays > 3ft from the controller How you configure 8 100W panels will depend on the input ratings of the charge controller you are using, as well as the mounting orientation of each panel.

                        A bit more expensive than some of the cheaper made ones out there but this panel is a lot more durable and the customer service could not be beaten. Every question I had about the Grape Solar System starting from purchasing the 50 watt starter kit to adding on a 40 amp charge controller and two 100w panels and every step of the way Steve at customer service answered my email the day I wrote it to them.

                        I used two of these to replace two 60 Watt modules on my RV when I replaced the RV roof about two years ago. This is matched with a Morningstar 15 Amp PWM charge controller, two group 27 size 220 Amp-hr deep cycle batteries and a 1100 Watt sine wave inverter. The system works great. Note that the system does not produce the rated output. That is typical of solar modules. The peak output is about 120 Watts. But it produces plenty of energy for my needs for dry camping without a generator. I got the Z mounting brackets then decided that would not work on the RV. I needed a system that would allow me to remove the modules for maintenance. I cut some aluminum angle and made my own Z brackets that bolt together so I could remove the modules by removing easily accessible bolts. See photos.

                          Good price for 100 watt panels. Easy to install, but I wish I could have found reasonably priced mounts that would have allowed tilting. Time will tell how they hold up. So far they are working as expected.

                          I made 3 portable cases out of 6 grape solar 100 watt panels and hooked them up to two 40 amp pwm grape solar controllers. Then built a 6V 245 AH x2 12v in series then tied 3 in parallel totaling 735 AH 12v bank. Hooked up a 6,000 watt 12,000 watt max inverter. I put electronics in my truck tools box and hardwired a 30 amp RV RECEPTICLE BOX into inverter and mounted it to tool box and put the 6 6v batteries into an army trunk with vents custom drilled around the side top. And plugged in the panels and RV worked awesome. I will upload pictures if I can.

                          I was very pleased when I pulled the two 100 watt grape panels out of their boxes. They were well packed, no damage at all. I hooked them up to a Victron 75/15 controller and once the sun came out from behind the clouds they were producing 210 watts of power. I made them into a portable suitcase and as they were so inexpensive thought I would need to beef up the frames. That wasn't needed, they are well made units. Much better than I expected for $89. I have had them now for two weeks powering my RV from Bulk to Float each day.
